Yoko Taro’s ‘SINoALICE’ Gets New Global Launch Date Following Localization Delay

Pokelabo and Nexon announced that the mobile fantasy RPG, SINoALICE, will launch on July 1, globally, on iOS and Android.

After a delay in the west due to localization errors, SINoALICE has finally received a global release date. Beginning on March 23, global development will be transferred from Nexon to Pokelabo, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gree.

Also, players eager to pre-register can do so at the SINoALICE official website. A pre-registration campaign has also been revealed, with the first goal being to reach 30,000+ reactions to win 100,000 Gold at the game’s launch. More milestones will be announced soon. Just note that only non-Japanese social media accounts can participate in this countdown event.

Additionally, the game will launch with a NieR: Automata event, with a second event for NieR Replicant, also planned. Yoko Taro himself has written the NieR: Automata event as well as a scenario in the NieR Replicant event.

In the past, the game was delayed in the west after the team took to the game’s Facebook page to reveal that they ran some quality checks on the English version and realized that the localization wasn’t anywhere near acceptable. This caused the team to hold off on the game’s localization.

SINoALICE is a retelling of classic fairy tales set in a fantasy world created by none other than Yoko Taro, who served as creative director on the project. The game follows several characters based on fairy tales as they must work together to fight enemies and solve puzzles in order to save the storytellers that created their world.
